The White Shark Trust Field Research Assistantship is proud to introduce you to our assistants:

Alex BROWN (Burnham, England), Trey SNOW (Wilmington, North Carolina, USA), Nicolas PADE (Nivaa, Denmark) and John NICHOLS (La Jolla, California, USA).

On Wednesday the 3rd of November 2004, we went out to sea on board Barracuda (Shark Diving Unlimited). The wind was blowing strong from the east, and the ride out was much more comfortable than it would have been on Lamnidae. We observed four different White Sharks today...
We visited Shark Alley between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock to look at the Cape Fur Seal colony. Then we returned to Haibaai to drive along the beach... We spotted 15 different White Sharks swimming close to the beach, a group of Common Dolphins and Humpback Dolphins, and a few Southern Right Whales. Amazing!
In the afternoon, we took the Millenium Falcon for a 4by4 track into the Nature Reserve nearby Erlkraalsmond. We drove to the dunes along the shore of Haibaai along which we usually conduct our shore transect. We spotted two White Sharks from the beach in the breakers. Beautiful beach to go for a walk (and a swim)...
Note to Lauren: Please send more pictures!!! We loved the few you sent for Alex' Birthday!
